The second best 'making of' featurette on the disc
There are two different 'making of' featurettes on the accompanying disc for "Giant". The first, "Memories of 'Giant'", is the best because it spent less time talking about the production and more talking about what the actors thought of each other and how they spent their time together during their off time in the middle of rural Texas. To me, that was great. But the more traditional featurette is "Return to 'Giant'" and it's pretty typical of one of these films--no better and no worse. There were some lovely things I learned--such as how the director, George Stevens, encouraged the locals to watch and often participate in filming--as well as how he previewed each day's rushes with any local who wanted to view it in their local theater. Not a must-see but certainly well worth your time--particularly if you love and appreciate "Giant". The only misgiving I have is that quite a few of the interviews on this film are ALSO in the other--making seeing both less imperative.
